GP Extended Access

GP Extended Access

NHS East and North Hertfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group are looking to improve access to primary care services, including making appointments available at times that are convenient to patients through the GP Extended Access service.

To achieve this we are working with our local GPs and engaging with out patient population to develop a service that meets their needs. From 1 October 2018 an extended access service will be available for all patients registered with GP practices in east and north Hertfordshire.

What is the GP Extended Access Service?

The Extended Access Service will make appointments with GPs in east and north Hertfordshire available at times including evenings and weekends.

When are these appointments available?

Appointment times will vary for each of our locality areas based on the feedback received from local patients and the resources available to the practices in those areas. You can find out which locality your practice is in by clicking here or using the table below.

How do I make an appointment?

In the first instance we would advise patients to contact their individual GP practice for more information on their extended access service and how patients can make appointments. Each area is looking to deliver a service which meets the needs and preferences of it's individual patient population, and GP practices will have a responsibilty to promote and offer that service to their patients.

What can I be seen for?

A GP Extended Access appointment is exactly like an appointment at your own GP practice. The service can see babies and children and has nurse appointments available.

Will I see my own GP and/or nurse?

You will be seen by local GPs and nurses, but it is unlikely that you will be seen by your own GP or nurse. If you would prefer to see your usual GP or practice nurse, please book an appointment with your usual practice during their normal opening hours.

Will the GP I see have access to my medical record during my appointment?

Your medical record will, with your consent, be available to the GP that sees you, to ensure that they have the information they need to give you the best possible care. Notes of your appointment will be sent back to your own GP practice to ensure that your record is up-to-date. An appointment with this service will be just like an appointment at your own GP practice. Further information about how we use your medical record is available at on the CCG website here: www.enhertsccg.nhs.uk/mcr
